Stairway is the best song ever. I am a Led eppelin fan and a Robert Plant fan. I plan on seeing Robert in Memphis in July. But, what is sad is that Robert does not seem to like the song . He should be very proud of that song. It has helped me alot throughout my life. Stairway is GREAT and ABSOLUTELY the BEST song ever.

'Stairway' has a power & mystery and beauty that is unique to it! think: 'Achilles Last Stand' by Zeppelin is still the best single piece of muic they ever created.

While music is subjective, metal heads are always stuck in neutral. Best constructed rock song from the early 70's is Curved Air "Piece of Mind" period.
